Post W124 Door handle removal.

Hello, I'm hoping someone can give me some insight as to how the outer door handle comes off. I have removed the door panel,looked inside and see nothing that is a tell tale sign as to what to do. I am doing some paint work, and it needs to come off.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!

On the door latch panel (not inside but on the door's outter part) you have 2 rubber grommets.

Remove the grommet that's leveled with the door handle and you'll see the bolt holding the door lock.

Cant remember what's left to do to remove the handle itself though...

Hi, I removed the small plastic grommet, it looks like an allen screw that holds the lock cyl. There appears to be a screw showing through on the end of the handle closest to the front of the car. However, it is not visible from the outside. I am wondering if the outer chrome strip has to come off,and how that is done? I don't want to bend it or mar it up only to find out that now I need to replace a handle that I have no idea how to remove.
Thanks for your reply!!!!
Joe

THANK YOU! YOU ARE AWESOME!!!
So far this project has been turning out so much better than I thought it would, and at this point I hated the thought of just taping it off.
I've had it ready to shoot for 2 weeks now, but held back. Well worth the wait.
Thank you again!
Joe.
